Congresswoman Hartzler praises Florida judge’s ruling on unconstitutionality of ObamaCare

February 1, 2011
Press Release

Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-4) applauds the decision by a federal judge in Florida who ruled the ObamaCare government takeover of health care is unconstitutional.

“We have been arguing since Day One that the ObamaCare law is bad for this country and that it is a violation of the U.S. Constitution,” said Hartzler. “This federal ruling validates the argument that liberals in Congress, who rammed this legislation through, did not have the right to mandate that every American must purchase health insurance. The U.S. House recently passed the legislation I co-sponsored repealing last year's job-destroying government takeover of healthcare. This ruling confirms that the House is on the right track in its desire to restore individual health care choices to the American people.”

71 percent of Missouri voters who cast ballots in November voted to reject ObamaCare's health care mandates. Both chambers of the Missouri Legislature have also voted to repeal this government interference in our lives. Dozens of states are involved in litigation to repeal ObamaCare and end government control of health care choices.

Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler was elected to the U.S. Congress on November 2, 2010. She is a member of the House Armed Services Committee and the House Agriculture Committee.
